Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I purchased a nexxtech 1508338 High Performance 2-way splitter for splitting 2 satelite signals, not all channels work then a satelite warning indicates everything from connection problems to bad weather. On line I found information that an signal amp may be required. I then purchased a Nexxtech 2 way amp #150116. Same problem. Of course their are many variables to the problem but can we get back to basics?? Please reply

SOURCE: I have two problems with

First I would move the box closer to the booster (amplifier) if its furthest away from it. Do you have another box you can swap out in that location to see if the problem is the signal for some reason? I am not familiar with the boxes but, is it possible at 11 PM they are doing guide updates or possible software updates at that time? I know that here in the U.S. our two satelitte companies do guide and software updates but, those usually occur in the early morning hours of 2 AM. Hopefully that helps.

SOURCE: NO DTV CHANNELS

There may be an input button on the remote, or on the TV, that allows you to switch from the standard ATSC tuner to the DTV tuner.

Let me know if you can't find it and I will dig for an owner manual. But the above should allow you to switch tuners and input sources.

If the tuner is bad, changing the mainboard should fix the problem.

Hello,I have purchased a digital converter to connect to my tv to receive local stations,My question is,What do i need to connect all 4 tv's that I have to the converter? or Do i need a converter for...


The converter has only one tuner, this means it can only tune one station or channel at a time. The output of the converter is usually a single coaxial cable jack. The output is generally a user selected channel - often Ch 3 or Ch 4. When you connect the output of the converter to the antenna input of the TV, you set the TV channel to match the setting on the converter (again, Ch 3 or Ch 4).

You could install an amplified splitter to split the output of the converter and run a cable from each TV to the splitter, more on this amplified splitter, later. Set all the TV's to the same channel as the converter output (Ch 3 or Ch 4) and you would be able to watch whatever the converter is tuned to. This means ALL the TV sets must watch the same channel. What is showing on one will be shown on all. This may not be a problem if you live alone and own 4 TVs. You could simply turn one TV off when leaving a room and turn on another when entering a new room. This will be a problem if there are two or more people in the house that wish to watch different programs at the same time. To accommodate everyone, you would need as many converters as there are different programs that are to be watched on different TVs at the same time - 4 would be a good choice to provide the greatest flexibility of tuning for every TV.. You would simply install the additional converters on the other TVs just as you did with the first TV.

If you wish to use a splitter to divide the output of the converter to several different TVs (or have a single antenna and want to send the signal from it to several TVs for that matter), an amplified splitter is highly recommended. A standard splitter only divides the signal and has no provisions to boost the signal from the antenna. The more ways a signal is split, the less signal there is to supply to the TV sets. The result is a snowy picture. An amplified splitter not only splits the signal the way a standard, non-amplified splitter does, but also boosts the signal from the antenna to each TV. This provides a much stronger signal to the TV which results in a better picture. Pick an amplified splitter that has enough output jacks (based on the number of TVs you wish to connect).

I hope this helps and good luck!

How to connect microphone to Yamaha RX-V365 as a PA system.


Home-theatre receivers don't have microphone inputs. If you want to use the receiver as an amplifier in PA system, you need to use some kind of mic pre-amp or a mixer with mic inputs.
For PA mixer is needed anyway almost every time and all mixers have at least one mic input (with a pre-amp). Mixers have line-level output(s), which you can connect to the analog input of receiver.
Using receiver as an amp in PA has advantage that you have 5 channel amp. When using high sensitive PA speakers (as oposed to less sensitive Hi-fi home speakers), you can get good performance with the power rating of receiver. You could even use 2 separate channels for subwoofers and 2 channels for satelite speakers - but for that you would need a receiver with 5.1 analog inputs and special device called crossover which would divide the output from mixer into low-frequency signal and high-frequency signal which you would then connect to the front and rear analog inputs. But with RX-V365 you can use only 2 channels with analog input

Can't pick up BBC1, BBC2, ITV1, ITV2, CH4, CH5 on DTV (JVC LT 19DK2BJ). All other channels OK


Solution - Replaced cheap and very basic B&Q signal splitter with a better splitter/amplifier. Signal then perfect for both TVs (signal split to TV in Lounge + TV in Kitchen)

Our first tv has a booster amplifier on the coaxial cable, i have purchase a new tv and need to know what product i need to us to attached the new tv's coaxial cable too. We have used a splitter box, but...


To have good picture quality you need zero DB (decibels) for one TV without a splitter. You can use and inline amplifier for each individual TV hooked up to the cable input with a output leg connected to each TV. If your house in wired in parallel (one main input hooked up to a splitter with all of the other TV's run off of the splitter) you can use a whole house amplifier hooked up inline between the input line and the splitter. If you house is wired in series (the input goes to the first outlet, then splitter to second outlet and so forth) each splitter knocks your signal levels down 50% each splitter. Amplifier placement depends on how the home is wired and how many TV's are in the home. Splitters can be either balanced (50/50 split) or imbalanced (75/25) etc. On a two way splitter 75% of the signal goes out one leg, while 25% goes out the other (usually for FM transmissions). If you have a three way splitter the signal is divided by the number of output legs. Splitters do go bad as well (sometimes only one leg). You can also buy an amp that is multi- port (which splits the signal and amplifies in one unit/ one input and 2,3,4 outputs). Amplifiers are electric and there is no way that the splitter can interrupt the power that would take all the signal away. If you meant that it drops the signal level so the picture is unacceptable, that's different. If you have another splitter in the house try using that one, the other might be bad. All in all you can purchase most anything you need at a Radio Shack and are very inexpensive. Amps can be purchased in different gains (boost). +10db, etc. I cannot believe that your cable company is giving you such minimal signal that 1. you need an amp?, and 2. that one splitter drops your picture to nothing? Your line extenders (amps for the lines that feed your neighborhood) might have problems or need adjustment by the lazy, cheap, cable co. also. I had problems with my cable company (when I had one) my modem would not stay online. 4 months later, they diagnosed the problem and my drop (RG56 cable line that feeds my home from their tap in the cable box outside) was bad. My friend could stay online and 2 months later comcast adjusted their amps (line extenders) in the neighborhood and then he was fine. I know this is a lot to digest, but I'm just trying to draw a clear picture so you can understand it all. I hope this helps and good luck!

"No Signal" on channel 9


Appears you are getting a weak signal at the channel 9 frequency. If you are using a signal splitter, try replacing it with an amplified unit since splitters always do the deed but they can and will reduce signal strength significantly.

Also remember that digital signals are not like the older analog ones that they replace. They are not subject to ghosting but are weaker and susceptible to all sorts of interference such as a leaf, rain, etc. Your antenna is good.
You also might try raising the antenna. The higher it is the better it works. (use some wire to further support additional height) Why do you think transmitters are so tall?!?!?

Just got logik ldvr 1608 dvd but it cant find any


You need an aerial to tune the freeview.
However, to record from satelite you can connect a scart lead from the satelite vcr out to the dvd in and it will record vie the av "channel" on the dvd.
Depending on your location, regarding signal strength, you can purchase an indoor, boosted aerial to tune the freeview.
Also, if the scart connection on the dvd is a 2 way connection( allowing a signal to the tv as well as from the tv) you can connect the tv to the satelite and the dvd to the satelite only and the dvd will play through the satelite even when the satelite is off.

Tiling on HDTV


FIXED MY TILING PROBLEM-FINALLY !!!!
After months and months of freezing pictures and audio drop outs, I took it upon myself to see if I could fiquire this out.

In the attic I located my main cable feed was connecting to a 5-way splitter. That means my signal is being split 5 different time to go to 5 different TV jacks.

FIRST, I disconnected the main cable line from the 5-way splitter and connected it to a 2-way splitter.
SECOND, I connected the line that goes to my main TV (cable box) to the 2-way splitter.
THIRD, I connected a cable from the 2-way splitter back to the 5-way splitter.

THAT'S IT !!!!

My other TVs which don't use a cable box, never had any tiling issues, just the HDTV with the cable box. So now the signal to the HDTV is only split twice instead of 5 times.

Video splitters


I don\'t know about your specific brand, but splitters have losses that are typically 3.5,6, 7.5 and 11 for 2,3,4 and 8 way.



In most cable modem applications, we use a single 2-way so that the cable modem has only a minimum loss, then the TV\'s get put on the other side of the 2-way and split as many times as needed.



Here\'s a link to a typical splitter manufacturer where you can see the printed insertion loss of the various splitters.

I have Rabbit Ears on an analog TV using a Zenith digital converter box. But how do I tape a TV show on my VCR that I'm not watching? I purchased another digital converter box to attach to the VCR but what...


The only way you can tape a different show than you're watching is to do as you have done: purchase a second converter box and connect it to the VCR as you did with the TV. You can pick up a device called a splitter which will allow you to divide the antenna signal between the two boxes.

There are some problems with the splitter arrangement. If you need to adjust the antenna position to get a good signal on one channel, like the one you want to watch, that may mean it isn't in the best position for another, like the one you want to record. You might need two antennas for the best performance.

Also, you can't program recording on different channels at different times unless you'll be home to change channels on the converter box. The VCR will only find a signal on channel 3 or 4, depending on how you set up the box, and you'll always record on that channel. The TV channel you record will be chosen by the converter.

Finally, you need to connect both the VCR and the converter box to a single antenna connection on your TV. There are two ways to do this. One is to use a splitter again. Normally they are used to split a single antenna input to two ouputs, but they can also combine to inputs into one output (basically you just use it backwards). Connect the ouputs from the box and VCR to the splitter's output connectors, and then go from the splitter's input connector to the TV antenna connector. This arrangement may not give the best picture quality, though. An alternative is to use an "A/B" switch, which allows you to choose which source connects to the TV.

It sounds more complicated to hook up than it actually is. It is more complicated and less flexible to use this setup than it was before the switch to digital broadcasting, but they call this "progress."

Hope this helps. If you need more information, just post a followup comment!
